– Last night’s 40-Man Royal Rumble match was one of the longest WWE match in history at 70 minutes. Speaking of the pay-per-view last night, Michael Cole noted that the #40 entrant, Kane, was entering his 13 straight Royal Rumble match in a row, which is the new record.
– While Evan Bourne was one of the many rumored names for last night’s Royal Rumble main event, the RAW Superstar is not quite ready to return to action yet. Bourne noted on Twitter this weekend that he was still doing physical therapy. Bourne is scheduled to return in time for WrestleMania 27.
– Three WWE stars who were advertised for the Royal Rumble but did not appear were Primo Colon, Darren Young and David Hart Smith. This left 9 slots open – the six before the match and the three left open by them not appearing. These 9 slots were filled by Kevin Nash, Booker T, Dolph Ziggler, Randy Orton, Alex Riley, Hornswoggle, Tyler Reks, Chavo Guerrero and The Great Khali, who made his WWE return with Ranjin Singh.
